Re: VideoCore 4 GPU Driver Added to Linux Mainline in Kernel

Apologies for the naive questions, but does this driver mean smooth desktop environment performance for ie. gnome 3?
And of course does that mean waiting for or beyond the release of Linux kernel 4.4 - where the KMS part of the driver is scheduled to be released?

Re: Ubuntu 14.04 (trusty) Raspberry Pi 2 image

Great that it's possible to boot ubuntu 14.04 on a raspberry pi! Is it possible to run Unity? After installing ubuntu-desktop, loging in from the graphical login screen gets me to a desktop with no icons or menu, basically a white cursor with ubuntu background image. (Installed xserver-xorg-video-fb...
